Candypop - Candy and the Broken Biscuits (Candypop, Book 1)

By Lauren Laverne

Join fabulously funny (undiscovered) rock chick, Candy Caine on a rollercoaster ride to the world’s biggest music festival. A sharp, comic teen series from uber-cool presenter Lauren Laverne.

Misunderstood musical genius Candy Caine – age fifteen – knows she’s destined for a bigger life beyond her small-town existence. And now Mum is marrying The World’s Dullest ManTM it’s time to put plans into action and achieve world domination with her band, The Broken Biscuits. Oh – and find her real dad, who will most definitely be cool and, of course, will verify her own super specialness.

With a battered old guitar and some supernatural assistance, can Candy get her life on track and her new band on the road to greatness? Candy Caine is the hilarious new creation of debut author Lauren Laverne – a writer who’s been there, done that and customised the T-shirt.
